FGWAB Reception Keynote Speakers

Dr. Augusta Julian, Former President of BCTC

"The mission of FGWAB fits so well with efforts by educational institutions to address barriers to student success.  Our work at BCTC identified "first-generation" as one of the risk factors for students who are seeking diplomas and degrees.  Low income, lack of after-school support, lack of role models, low expectations, and other issues are additional challenges to students feeling empowered to find their path to higher education.  Women in the Bluegrass Region benefit greatly from the vision of the founders of FGWAB to help them find their power to succeed!"
